Beautiful Titanic tiles from an Ohio studio

September 4, 2012

The Artists’ Open Studio in Norwalk, Ohio, produced these Titanic Reflections  tiles (with a design inspired by the floor tiles used in some second-class and third-class areas of the Titanic) to commemorate the 100th anniversary.  The fleur de lis design on these unique small tiles is created from recycled bottle glass, which is fired onto glazed stoneware tile.  The resulting product sparkles, as the glass picks up the light. They can be used as coasters or trivets or as decorative items.  Besides the color combination shown above, which is called Fog Gray, they also come in two other combinations  called Antique Olive and Nutmeg Olive. Here are photos of the other two colors:

Artists’ Open Studio was created for adults with disabilities from Huron County. Artists work independently but with support and encouragement from the group. They come from many walks of life and with varied skills.

Price and shipping: the tiles are $9.00 each. Or you can order 4 tiles for $32.00 (for a discounted price of $8.00 each).  Up to 12 tiles can be shipped in a flat-rate box via the U.S. Postal Service for $11.35. To order the Titanic tiles, email titanictiles@gmail.com or zkimzim@aol.com .
